Uniworld’s partnership with CleanCoat A/S adds another layer of safety

TORONTO — Uniworld has contracted with Danish company CleanCoat A/S to employ its ACT CleanCoat solution across the company, including all Uniworld owned ships and Red Carnation Hotels.

Uniworld is the first river cruise company to adopt the ACT CleanCoat solution which is renowned for its ability to render surfaces self-disinfecting after one application.

Ellen Bettridge, CEO, Uniworld Boutique River Cruises, says all ships will be sprayed with the antimicrobial coating that is odourless, non-toxic and most importantly, kills bacteria and viruses including the coronavirus family. “This is another example of the way we are demonstrating tremendous care for our guests, and our crew. Their wellbeing is our everything; nothing takes a higher priority,” said Bettridge.

Bettridge adds: “CleanCoat is an incredible product that is absolutely safe, meets our strict sustainability standards and is effective. For advisors who want to be certain that everything that can be done is being done to ensure the well-being of their clients, this is it.”

The new partnership is in addition to Uniworld’s previously announced enhanced health and safety protocols, including health screenings, contactless payment, reserved seating when dining and other physical distance measures.
